How did you pick up on the book and get involved in the movie?

My friends told me about it, it was actually very popular at school, and so I bought a copy and read it in like a day, and it was just so amazing! And I read through the whole series and I heard they were making a movie, and at first I was like “Oh the movie, I can’t wait to see the movie, I have to buy tickets in advance!” and then I was like “wait a second…Rue…she kinda looks like me!”

So I called my agent and said “Can you just please get me an audition, please, just an audition, it’d be amazing!” and a few weeks later I got an audition. And I practiced my heart out and I actually dressed up as Rue, and I had twigs in my hair, leaves and mud, and I think I made a good first impression with my wardrobe and all, and then I got a call back!

I’m pretty obsessed with the Huger Games. I mean, I was obsessed before I even auditioned, so to actually be a part of it, I can’t even believe it yet, I don’t think I ever will.
